Sweden Recognizes File-Sharing Church


[1:36 pm ET] - Share - 3 Comments


This press release (in Swedish) announces the Missionary Church of Kopimism is now officially recognized in Sweden, the first country to sanction the religion. Kopimism holds file-sharing as one of its central principles, and the announcement refers to the involvement of Gustav Nipe, who is also affiliated with Sweden's Pirate Party. Here's word from the translation: "Information is sacred to the missionary Kopimistsamfundet, and copy the sacrament. Information has value, both in itself and in its content, and this value increases by copying. Thus, copying the heart of everything

    file-sharing as a religion...wow, what a world :) feel free to discuss

    ::facepalm::  Well, it is interesting but not as cool as the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

    This is why the US Supreme Court has held that the religious freedom guarantee in the first amendment only protects religious beliefs that are sincerely held.

    This has been in the works for awhile, too bad nobody will get the message.  People these days are too ready to dismiss the idea based on their own misconception of what "religion" really is; they would rather take offense at their notion of a "god" instead of realize that they no longer have the right to do what they wish with something they've paid for.
